Earthquakey People – Steve Aoki feat. Rivers Cuomo (Andrew W.K. Trash Remix)

23 Nov

A couple weeks ago we brought you  the Dillon Francis remix of Earthquakey People, a new track from Steve Aoki which features Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. It received quite a good reception, but Andrew W.K. has give the track the remix treatment to show how a little tweaking can change the entire feeling of a song.

You probably wouldn’t even recognize the original song other than perhaps the chorus. Steve Aoki is almost completely removed from the track all together in the Trash Remix. But strangely I am completely ok with that.

Check out the Andrew W.K. Trash Remix below and let us know what you think about which version you like better.

Chunk! No, Captain Chunk Free Song and Album Re-Release

11 Jul

I first wrote about Chunk! No, Captan Chunk back in March and mentioned their 2010 album Something For Nothing. Four months after my discovery, they have decided to re-record and re-release this album. There are not any new songs or bonus material, but it sounds as if they recorded the album again in a better studio.

You can see the kick-ass cover art above, and if you move quick, you can download a song off the re-release from Purevolume.com. But the free song download is only available until Wednesday. Check out Captain Blood below, and if you like it, go download it.

Coheed and Cambria Far Music Video

6 Apr

Almost a year after releasing Black Rainbow, Coheed and Cambria have just released a music video for their song Far. Its a good song, but its a far cry from Blood Red Summer, the video that introduced me to Coheed and Cambria. I once saw Coheed open up for Linkin Park and it was easily one of the best live performances I have ever seen. These music videos don’t do justice to their live show. Enjoy the new video, I know Lazslo Panaflex will.

Crucify Me (Antichrist Remix)

3 Apr

Bring Me The Horizon are nothing new to the remix game, infact they released an entire remix album entitled Suicide Season Cut Up a few years back, and it was only a matter of time before the remixes started for their latest album.

Antichrist have given the remix treatment to Crucify Me, one of my favourite songs off Bring Me The Horizons latest release, There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Lets Keep It A Secret.

You can check out the remix below, it hasn’t been made available to download yet, but as soon as it is, we’ll post the link. Enjoy.

New Protest The Hero Song

3 Feb

Protest The Hero are back! They have a brand new album coming out on March 22nd entitled Scurrilous and I am extremely excited for it. I’ve been closely watching the recording videos they have been releasing and this new album looks to be one of their best efforts to date.

I saw Protest The Hero in concert years ago before they broke into the mainstream, bought their record and told the guy sitting next to me, “These guys are going to be HUGE”. Needless to say, I was right.

Check out C’est La Vie below and be sure to check back for more Protest The Hero updates as they happen.

New Video From Funeral For A Friend

10 Jan

Funeral For A Friend are a British band that grew in popularity during the “emo” music years. A lot of people either love the music for its raw emotional lyrics and hard hitting guitar parts, or hate it because of the sappy lyrics and screaming.

Most emo bands have mostly disappeared, but there are a few who are trying to continue to release music, just with a little bit of a harder mentality. That is the case with FFAF.

Their new album Welcome Home Armageddon that is slated for release on March 14th has toned down the sappy side and increased the hard hitting guitar lines. You can check out their brand new video for Front Row Seats To The End Of The World below and figure out for yourself if you like their new sound.

Bittersweet Memories New Video

4 Dec

Bullet For My Valentine are a metal band that I am very fond of. The melodic shredding guitar lines really paved the way for me to get into heavier music. They have been putting out music for over ten years and continue to produce good head banging material.

The video I have for you today is for their second single off their 2010 release Fever. Bittersweet Memories is definitely a more chill side to these guys but there are still elements of heavy guitars in the chorus. Check out the brand new video below.

Lights Performs With Bring Me The Horizon

28 Nov

Not too long ago Bring Me The Horizon released their third full length LP and it blew me away. Totally surprised me with the growth they had made since their last record and every song on the album is amazing.

I have posted a song or two off their latest release There Is A Hell Believe Me I’ve Seen It, There Is A Heaven Lets Keep It A Secret, but this song was one of my favourite.

Don’t Go features Canadian pop star Lights. She has been making the rounds lately after just finishing up her cross country tour with Michou. She is also in talks with Deadmau5 to do a collaboration some time in the new year.  Expect big things from her in a number of genres in the not too distant future.

Check out the video as well as the CDQ song below.
